Barely Balanced was created post Big Bang. Well, post post post post post Big Bang in a far away land called “Ohio.”
Three friends at Hocking College decided to combine their daredevil antics and reckless stupidity to create an acrobatic show that would strike fear into the hearts of insurance adjusters everywhere. They drew their inspiration from a variety of characters such as Jackie Chan, Cirque Du Soleil, and the Marx Brothers. Combining this inspiration with years of experience gained in detention due to class clowning, they created an award-winning show that has toured the country entertaining audiences for nearly a decade.
Over the years each team member has added to the richness of the show with unique backgrounds in circus, theater, and stunt work, allowing Barely Balanced to continually evolve. The group has performed in outdoor theatrical settings for hundreds of thousands of people and occasionally brings the show indoors, braving a world of low ceilings, spot lights, canned music, and strict fire codes.
Come watch as Margret, Cameron, and Jimmy, or as you will come to know and love them “Small,” “Medium,” and “Large,” balance precariously on top of each other, contort their limbs, and juggle knives as razor sharp as their wit. They’ll incorporate a cornucopia of circus props into the fun including: Chinese yoyo (of death), rolla bolla (of doom), and hula hoop (of no particular threat). They may even use one of their favorite and most unpredictable props- YOU!
